, but the proxy americans look at when it comes to the middle east is israel, when it comes the dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. that is her job as chief diplomat. >> sadly probably the one perk she does not get. >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be

-semite. it's not just being anti-israel. he's got a problem with what he calls the jews, the jewish lobby. >> i don't think he ever used the jews as a term and i think he said the jewish lobby casually. he probably should have been more precise because he was referring in this instance to those who support israel. he wasn't referring to a jewish lobby concerned about general anti-semiti anti-semitism. when you're talking about israel you have to be precise in this country which is very heterogeneous. we have a lot of different points of view and a lot of sensitivities that have to be respected. inl that. that's how we talk, joan, in america. we make careful effort to do that. >> right. and peter is right. the neocons didn't do their homework. aaron david miller, the great middle east expert who actually is the person that chuck headachel used the phrase the jewish lobby with, came out in foreign policy and defended him and called these charges scurrilous and defended his approach to israel and to war. they popped off, they didn't do their homework, they assumed, you know, elliott abrams i
him recommit, as he did when we met privately, his support for maintaining the defense of israel and point out that his voting record has consistently been to support israel. i was pleased to hear him talk about iran and his support for international sanctions and the president's position on iran. so i think he is -- and this hearing is still going on. i think he's been trying to be very forthrite and responsive to all the questions that have been asked by the committee members. >> it seems like a rear guard action on the vietnam war. a few minutes later in the very hearings i was showing you there, chuck hagel returned to the topic of the surge in iraq and gave a more thoughtful response. it related to his decision making in his time as mccain had time there, too, in vietnam. let's watch. >> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and the horror of war. so i did question a surge. it wasn't an aberration to me ever. i always ask the question is this going to be worth the sacrifice because there will be sacrifice. in the surge case in
was in the senate, about israel. in a 2006 interview with former middle east convoy david miller, hagel said the following: >> i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. [inaudible] >> hagel favored direct talks with iran and is one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. members of the senate armed services committee are questioning the president's choice. >> hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. not only has he said you should directly negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, an organization, terrorist group that lobbed thousands of rockets into israel. >> his defenders point to his two purple hearts in vietnam. >> hagel is a tremendous patriot and statesman, served incredibly in vietnam, served this country as a united states senator. he hasn't had a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee r

on israel, for example, and iran? or is it really, truthfully, a proxy fight for something else? >> well, look, i mean, there may be people in the senate who have legitimate disagreements with him on israel. he is pro-israel. has he been 100% pro-israel by the aipac standard? no, he hasn't been. but you know who hasn't been? that's president obama. he's the one that makes the middle east policy. the defense secretary is the one who is overseeing the fighting of wars. so pretty much by definition this shouldn't be about foreign policy and diplomacy but about war fighting. >> right. >> it does raise the question of whether it has something to do with president obama rather than chuck hagel. >> maybe just a bit. dana, i want to change the topic slightly because there is a slight chance, as you may know, that the american flag will revert to 49 stars. take a listen to this. >> lots of reasons we believe texas should leave the union, but basically it boils down to political freedom that we have lost, cultural freedom we have lost, and certainly the economy. >> now, dana, this is what the amer
, this amendment would be even more detrimental to our ally, israel, for which the continuing instability in egypt is an abiding clear and present danger. i have seen no objections raised by our israeli allies to u.s. military assistance to egypt, nor do i expect to see any. here, too, i would urge my colleague to pick up the phone and call the israeli ambassador or just recall what i'm sure he heard from israel's leaders during his recent visit there a few weeks ago. this amendment is absolutely harmful to the national security of our ally, israel. the timing of the amendment is also detrimental because our government is currently engaged in discussions with the egyptian government and military about the need to shift our security cooperation more towards the kinds of programs and equipment that egypt needs to combat the threats they increasingly face: porous borders, a rising threat from terrorism, deteriorating conditions in the sinai, and a security sector in dire need of reform. mr. mccain: it is in egypt's interest to move in this direction, as they are beginning to do, and it is in our inte
comments related to israel that a, quote, jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people in congress. >> name one person, in your opinion, who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> reporter: outside the hearing, senators of both parties were critical. >> i'm going to be candid. i think that chuck hagel is much more comfortable asking questions than answering them. >> i don't think it's going very well. >> reporter: hagel was repeatedly pressed by both democrats and republicans to make clear his commitment to israel's security. >> i strongly support israel. >> reporter: and clarify his stand on iran. hagel had voted against declaring iran's revolutionary guard a terror organization. and today, incorrectly referred to the u.s. policy on iran and nuclear weapons as containment. >> by the way, i've just been handed a note that i misspoke. >> reporter: hagel said he fully backs the president's position that iran cannot be allowed to get nuclear weapons and says the u.s. should talk to iran. >> engagement is not appeasement.
and neighbors like israel that are going to be profoundly affected by it. and so it's true sometimes that we don't just shoot from the hip. >> so richard haass, is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> we're speculating. >> people are still going back and saying the most important speech of that campaign was the one given by bill clinton, without question. that was the turning point for the -- i mean, i say turning point, those guys were pounding republicans who they were targeting from the very beginning, but that was really when america just, i think, turned. bill clinton captured the moment and defended the presidency. >> well, it's clear that bill clinton's support for the president helped his re-election both at the convention and beyond the convention. you're asking me to speculate on something i simply don't know anything about. >> well, that's what we do here. >> sorry. >> how long you been coming here? >> secretary of state leaving office, the president does a joint interview? >> i've never seen it before. the secretary of speech is
legitimate concerns about what hagel's positions were with respect to iran and israel. then again, i thought about what was behind the act? it" the end it was a democratic president appointing a cabinet member. it didn't shock me that schumer was on board. i was surprised by the speed. but it looks like it's shaping up for a relatively more comfortable confirmation battle for chuck hagel. >> michael, what i think it's not abouted a tud. i don't know where cardin is going to go. i don't know where a lot of people from big states, jewish communities are more sensitive to the language he's used in the past, but it seems to me that what will beat him now is evidence. not argument. it comes out that he's used bad language, ethnic language, if he said things or just showed an attitude publicly in a way that can be verified, he's still got problems if that happens. >> sure, anything can happen. hagel talks expansively. he's a little like biden. to his credit and i think something obama likes about him, he's not a totally programmed -- >> biden had a lot to do with pushing this, didn't he? >> i thin
? yes. should israel be forced to negotiate with them if they don't recognize israel's right to exist, if they don't renounce violence? no, absolutely. third, sanctions. do you support increased sanctions? would you support unilateral sanctions in? yes. there were differences between those statements then and now. he said they were five, six, seven years ago. the world has changed. even george bush didn't have a regime against iran at that point in time. i told him i was going to make these remarks public. and he said, go right ahead because i'm going to say the same thing at the hearings. at those hearings, he'll allay the concerns of the people. none of the major groups that's come out against hagel, most of it comes politically from the hard right. >> we will leave it there. you spend your morning with cruz, and then you get to hang out with beyonce as chair of the inaugural committee. working hard. >> david, let me point out, every one of those issues that chuck just mentioned for hagel, he disagreed in his record with chuck schumer on israel, on iran, on hezbollah. hagel's record
to lure back the well-founded, aggressive campaign that has saw to depict him as an anti-israel, homophobic politicians eager to get the pentagon's budget. pushback during meetings appears to have been effective, said an official helping him to prepare for the hearing. the effort to vilify hagel and his record as remain at a bus but has not reached the type of crescendo that has doomed high- profile political nominations in the past. 'we have had a very impressive strategy for tackling some of the issues that have been raised,' the hagel aide said on wednesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the nomination's outlook. that is not to say that the confirmation is a foregone conclusion, supporters concede. critics have piled on to the initial critiques with charges that hagel's ties to defense contractors and other private sector firms may create conflict of interest. senator carl levin, the chair of the senate armed services committee, says that hagel will face tough questions about his past demands. democrats outnumber republicans on the panel 14-12, but committ
to the deep and enduring bonds between the u.s. and israel. >>> and we are getting new details about the condition of former israeli prime minister ariel sharon who suffered a devastating stroke seven years ago. here's cnn's sara sidner. >> reporter: one thing is clear, doctors and sharon's family are excited about what a new test has revealed. doctors and scientists from the u.s. and israel used a high-powered mri on mr. sharon. and the scan showed significant brain activity in response to external stimuli. mr. sharon has been in the hospital for seven years after suffering is a brain hemorrhage in 2006. now, for year, the public has been under the impression that the storied israeli political powerhouse was in a coma or vegetative state. i spoke with the doctor who said sharon actually has had a low level or intermediate level of consciousness throughout the years which means he was not on life support or comatose all this time but somewhere in between consciousness and comatose and doctors don't know where exactly on the spectrum. when the new test was performed, everyone in the r
